Hi,
I Have a seat Leon Fr 1.4 - 2015 - (150 BHP) and I am trying to get it as fast as I can SAFTEY, I would like to get my car to stage 2 however I don't want to blow the engine, I currently have the following MODS installed
K&N Induction Kit, Forge Dump Valve, Decat Down pipe & Res delete with open and close Value System,
Are these Mods good enough to take to stage 2 without any problems?

In the future I might want to put in a KO3 Turbo, Would I have to forge the engine to get more power safety? and what is the max power I could expect with the KO3 Turbo and a forged engine?

Thanks

Honestly, just don't bother. Sell the car and get something faster, with the amount you'll have to spend to achieve 200+ safely you could get a Cupra. Not to mention the additional insurance costs of a heavily modified car and also the reduction in fuel economy will also make it rather obsolete owning an ecoTSI.
Or just stick with a stage 1.

Maybe I just chose the wrong car to modify :(
I will wait for my insurance to go down and then see if I can sell and get something faster,

Thank you

I know you aren't looking to do this now but I've always wondered what might be possible from this engine. You would also probably need a performance clutch, uprated injectors and maybe new cams and intercooler on top of what was previously mentioned.

If you are running a decat on it already, either your driving around with a light or you have had it mapped out? "Stage 2" is technically just remap and decat anyway so your already there.

I'm with @CalJames on this. I understand the desire to tune a Cupra, but not the smaller engines. You'd be much better off changing your car for one with a bigger engine.

As said it isn't worth the cost. However, a company called RTMG have a 240bhp package for these engines including a hybrid turbo, water charge cooler to air cooled intercooler conversion and other mods. The last I heard from them they were working on a 260bhp package. From what I can tell they don't have issues with the engine running at 240, but as said it will cost a shed load of £££ to do vs just getting a cupra.
